I think that this is one of those projects where you have to spend money so you can enjoy what you spent your money on.  Right Jim?

 It is kind of like fly tying, pretty cool to catch something on something you made.

Bummer on the logo.

But I do love the fact of catching on what you made with your own hands.
I use the ribbit brand of frogs and have had enough luck with them that I bought several packs of them. Until I saw this thread I had no idea you could make your own. Do yours hold up as well as the store bought?

I havent used them enough yet to tell Slag. You can make soft ones which tear easy but flop a lot, or tough ones which last a long time but are stiffer.  There's three types of plastic. Soft, medium and hard. Which hook do you use? Thats a lot of what really determines how long they last.

Thats a helluva good price Nasty. Those aluminum molds are expensive. I bet his aluminum molds alone are worth close to $400. The stone ones on the end are real inexpensive.
Too bad He dont have I feel like I need.
I do like the double barrel injector. You can mix colors are fill two molds.  :eyebrow:
